Our Company History
Larsen Globalization was founded in 2001 by Inger Larsen.
Inger began her translation and localization career as a Norwegian Software Localizer. After almost two decades in the industry, in roles from hiring manager to account manager to university lecturer, she set up as an independent consultant.
From her home office in London, Inger launched Larsen Globalization Recruitment Services Ltd., providing specialized recruitment consultancy services to organizations with translation and localization focus.
Originally working mainly within Europe, Larsen Globalization expanded into the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions in 2003.
Global and technological expansion within our industry led Larsen Globalization to launch our additional Psychometric Assessment Service.
This service grants our clients in-depth assessments of potential hires. This achieves unparalleled results, with 96% of candidates still in employment 12 months later.

I have worked in a wide range of roles within the translation and localization industry, on both the buyer and LSP side. In 2001 I started my own company providing recruitment services for roles with translation and localization focus - and Larsen Globalization was born.
I love attending industry events, sometimes as a speaker and panellist, and have written several published articles for industry magazines.
I have a passion for education, having taught at the University of Surrey. I regularly give talks for translation students and new professionals, and participate in initiatives to nurture new talent in the industry.
By encouraging and (hopefully) inspiring new generations of translation, localization and globalization experts, I believe our industry will continue to innovate and thrive.
I am also an enthusiastic member of Women In Localization, a non-profit global organisation. Our mission is to foster a global community for the advancement of women in the localization industry. I have volunteered in the UK chapter, across European chapters and in the Global Community with focus on Education and Coaching.
Being an athlete from a young age, competing on a national and international level, opened a door for me to the multicultural environment I fell in love and never left. This ambitious environment encouraged and disciplined my mind, and set the foundation for a career which would challenge and inspire me
I have been adventurous with a variety of industries, tightly connected with operations, people management and customer service. Over the years, I kept moving towards sales and account management, where I feel most comfortable and confident.
Inger and I discovered one another through our industry links and engaged brilliantly - firstly as two professionals. We created exactly the sort of genuine working relationship Larsen Globalization seeks to achieve for our clients and professionals every time.
I was onboarded as a Client Manager in 2019 using psychometrics, and it changed my entire view of recruitment. Through the psychometric assessment, we were able to identify my strengths and boost my ability to work at my very best. This has been an incredibly rewarding experience, which I am delighted to share every day!
